To avoid conflicts with the impending release of new cygwin-x packages
(which will use the modular x.org sources and install into /usr NOT
/usr/X11R6/ ), I've updated the xpm-nox package.
xpm-nox provides a version of the Xpm image format library compiled to
NOT require the use of an X server. However, it has also contained a
DLL and utility that may conflict with the new x.org binaries' location.
So, various name changes and removals...
Changes from 4.2.0-4
o /usr/bin/cxpm.exe --> /usr/bin/cxpm-noX.exe
o /usr/share/man/man1/cxpm.1 --> /usr/share/man/man1/cxpm-noX.1.gz
o /usr/bin/sxpm.exe REMOVED 
o /usr/share/man/man1/sxpm.1 REMOVED 
o /usr/bin/cygXpm-X4.dll REMOVED 
 sxpm never had any business in xpm-nox. It is an X program, and the
x.org packages will provide this tool (and, presumably, its man page)
 This DLL has been retained for 5 years, with no known users. It is
an X-based compilation of the libXpm code (so it really didn't belong in
xpm-nox, either). The "real" libXpm DLL is distributed in the x.org
packages (current and future) under a different name ['cygXpm-4.dll' vs
'cygXpm-X4.dll']. It is the x.org version, cygXpm-4.dll, that all known
Xpm clients on cygwin use. After five years of keeping this
compatibility library around, I'm now removing it.
If removing this DLL causes a problem -- recompile your app to use the
official X-based libXpm DLL.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
